While the weather has remained warm the leaves are starting to turn colors. Seeing how I look down on the neighborhood while I am at work I saw this view in a office I normally don’t wander into too often. I set the camera up on a mini tripod that I carry and set the shutter delay to 2 seconds and took several images. The scene reminds me of some some rural town. Reality is those are million dollar homes in a major metropolitan area.
This is the first time in post processing that I really used the haze slider in Lightroom. It basically adds contrast to the image which is why I avoid it. I just gave it a try because the image was shot through a less than clean glass window. I was very pleased with the result. After that brought into Photoshop and the usual magic applied. I do tend to use Nik Efex Pro and run Pro Contrast and Vibrance & Saturation filters on my landscapes. Just gives it nice results. Then a bit of dodging and burning and good to.
